Some hiking pants really can be worn year round. Take the Women's Strathcona Pants for example – they're robust and warm enough for year-round hiking and trekking, but breathable enough to be comfortable in warmer temperatures. The high-stretch softshell fabric is 80 percent windproof, letting in just a breath of cool air for a pleasant microclimate with unbeatable breathability. These soft shell pants can withstand a light rain for a while, and if they do get wet, they're also fast-drying. This product is made with Eco Finish, an eco-friendly water-repellent finish without fluorocarbons (PFC). Green Shape is your guarantee for eco-friendly products from sustainable materials, resource-conserving manufacturing and fair production.
